I did not know this piece of information about Brigadier Gangadharan when I wrote yesterday’s post. I give below the same to express my admiration for him and to honor him by sharing the information with all those who read this blog.
Brigadier Gangadharan served the Indian Army Infantry (Guards) for about 35 years and had to take untimely retirement due to becoming a war casualty while commanding an Infantry Brigade on the border in J&K in 2000(Mar).He is now confined to a wheel chair due to paraplegia below chest level, as a result of spinal cord injury.
From all accounts, he appears to be a great fighter and now fights for the armed forces despite being confined to a wheel chair.
I salute you Sir.
